Fruity Oaty Bars

Here’s a great recipe of Fruity Oaty Bars for all you hungry Browncoats out there, it is adapted from the recipe Arizona Browncoats uses at CSTS.

They keep well frozen then microwave for about 10 seconds. A good commuter breakfast.  You can use any fruit combination you like. I found a 6 oz. pre-packaged mix of chopped apricots,plums, pears & apples at Target that worked really well. Check out your local farmer’s market, Sprouts,Sunflower, or Trader Joe’s for some good mixes.

1 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 eggs
3/4 cup whole-wheat flour
1/4 cup wheat germ
1 cup rolled oats or porridge oats
1 cup mixed dried fruit, chopped (I sprinkled the fruit with flour to keep them from clumping)
1/2 cup chopped plums or dates

Pre-heat oven to 350°F. Mix butter and sugars thoroughly. Mix in eggs. Stir in flour, wheat germ, oats and fruit. Spread mixture in greased rectangular baking pan, 9×13″. Bake 25-30 minutes. Cool 10minutes then cut into bars. Makes about 24.
